Citi says that 40% of the fund has already been invested or pledged.

"We are very pleased with the closing of CPI Capital Partners Asia Pacific. We received strong investor interest for the fund," says Joseph Azrack, president and chief executive officer of CPI. "Asia is a compelling market for private equity real estate investments.ö
